    Hi all

    Do you think the screen bleeding on the ipad2 issue issue ?

    I wonder how many people have the problem ?

    I bought a black one and it has screen bleeding so I returned it and got a new one but same issue.

    So is it really a problem and how many people have it and put up with it ?

    Im not sure if to keep this one or return it or even if it was just a wrong batch.

    Many people have this issue and you'll see plenty of posts in the iPad2 section on this problem. Also look in the News section for Maura's report. Apple has sort-of officially recognised the problem as you've seen by exchanging the iPads with no questions asked.

    Some reports indicated that the problem was due to the thermo-setting adhesive used to secure the screens on the iPad2 - the iPad1 had clips instead - and that this adhesive takes some time to 'cure' (set). Some members with this problem have opted to wait a while to see if, indeed, the problem does disappear after a while - the iPads will be exchanged by Apple during the warranty period, so there's no hurry.

    Yes, MANY have this problem.

    Here is some reading if you have time:
    Apple - Support - Discussions - Significant light leakage, few light ...

    One user said he put some books on it, and left it for a while he was out of town, and it seems ot have fixed it. Worth a try.

    Mine is due here next week. Any light leak will be unacceptable, as my iPad 1 does not do this. I realize it may take a while until Apple sorts this out, but I would at least log a case with Apple, so you can get it fixed when they get a solution.

    Looking at my iP2 screen when powering up or down, I can see a few lighter sections along the edges. I guess that's light leakage. Never noticeable at any other time, even when using an app that has a black background.

    The other night, I happened to notice the same thing on my LCD computer monitor while powering down the system. Doesn't appear any other time.

    For me, it's not an issue because when I'm actually doing something, the graphics are fantastic.

    I wouldnt worry about this too much, mine has this bleeding and the only time I noticed it was when i read about the issue and actually tested it, otherwise I wouldn't have really noticed.

    If it does bother you, you have 12 months to return it :)

    Slight yellow back light bleeding

    I picked up a white iPad2 a couple of weeks ago ... and noticed a slight yellow flare around the home button at first (only noticeable when first turning on while the screen is essential dark. Some other minor spots ... not nearly as extensive ... the one around the home button was about the size of a nickel.

    Now after two weeks of doing nothing ... they are gone... all of them. Your guess is as good as mine as to why they disappeared. Never even saw the effect in normal usage, however. IMHO. Quit worrying.

    Like another poster mentioned, Apple gives you up to a year of ownership and will replace it for you if it is an issue for you. Can't beat that with a stick, now can you.

    Hi guy's I phoned my local Apple store today and mentioned this problem, I do have a little bleeding but nothing that would of bothered me had I not seen the threads about it. To my surprise the guy on the phone says he has never heard of an issue with the screens and suggested I make an appointment with a genius so as soon as I can I will make a visit to store but it's like 25 miles so I will wait till stocks are better so am not wasting my time if they exchange this unit.
